    Need Help Identifying a Song

    Hey guys, I've had this song that I've heard many times in the past that I've never been able to identify and I figured you might be able to help as you seem to know your stuff very well.

    Trouble is, I've never heard any lyrics to it, I have no clue the name of it, who does it, the album it's on, or any tangible things that it's associated with. I've always just heard it on commercials for random things and off the top of my head, I only remember one of them - a commercial for FX running "The Devil Wears Prada" lol.

    I've ruled out many of the songs that people frequently suggest, like "Take Five" and "Cantaloupe Island" (though it does sound a little similar to that in some regards)

    This here's a link to myself playing the melody of it on a keyboard: http://www.watzatsong.com/en/name-that-tune/340108.html I know it's not anywhere near as good as if I had an actual recording of it, but that's all I've been able to do (and the saxophone sound made it sound even less like it, hence the synth-piano being used instead lol)

    Any clues? Thanks in advance.

    Hi EtceteraX,
    I have no clue what tune it is, but you know it would be more clear when you'd record it with a plain piano sound I think. Then the notes of the melody would be easier for people to hear.

    I can try to do that and post it soon. In the mean time, I came across a song that sounds similar to it (but I know isn't the song itself as it doesn't have the right melody to it and whatnot). A similar sounding song is Smoko Loco from the Extreme Music Library (which you can listen to via this link - https://www.extrememusic.com/#album/1282 ) if that gives anybody a clearer idea of what song I'm talking about.
